Off-Facebook Activity: Your New Best Friend

Off-Facebook Activity: Your New Best Friend

The Internet is an overwhelming place. While it has changed the lives of many people all over the world, it often leaves many people wondering how private their private information really is to some companies. On Facebook in particular, there have been multiple scandals regarding the privacy of users. The incident was so bad that the Federal Trade Commission ordered Facebook to pay a $5 billion fine–the largest fine in history. Of course, this barely affected the multi-billion platform. This fine didn’t change the fact that people still couldn’t fully trust there whereabouts of their information.

Introducing Off-Facebook Activity: a tool that allows you to see a summary of the apps and websites that send you information about your activity, while also giving you the option to clear this information from your account if you please. This gives people more transparency and peace of mind regarding their information. 

With Off-Facebook Activity, you can: 

  • See a summary of your information that other apps and websites have sent Facebook through their online business tools
  • Disconnect this information from your account
  • Choose to disconnect future off-Facebook activity from your account. This includes all of your off-Facebook activity, or even just for specific apps and websites.

When you use Off-Facebook Activity, it will remove all of your information such as emails, credit card numbers, and names from any subsequent sites visited. Basically, Facebook won’t know where you have been or anything like it. This also includes targeted ads. If you disconnect your data, you can say goodbye to targeted ads on Facebook, Instagram, and Messenger alike. In other words, your autonomy is finally yours again.

As said by Facebook, “We expect this could have some impact on our business, but we believe giving people control over their data is more important.” In light of all of their recent unpleasantness, these are welcomed words.

The Beginning Stages

Though this tool might be calling your name right this second, you will have to wait. Facebook is running a trial in Ireland, South Korea, and Spain before anyone else. They want to ensure there are as few hiccups as possible, which will benefit you in the end. Facebook doesn’t want another privacy problem on their hands, so it’s assumed that they want to take this one quite seriously.

Sit tight, and trust in the process. Off-Facebook Activity will be here soon–only a matter of time now!
